LONDON, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A London law firm said it has already sold 54 of this year's "must-have" Christmas gift -- vouchers for couples seeking to discuss divorce with a lawyer.

Lloyd Platt & Company said the vouchers, which start at $201 for a couple's half-hour session with a lawyer, have led hundreds of people to contact the firm in recent days and 54 of the vouchers have been sold in only three weeks, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

"Christmas can be a very stressful time for families as we have always seen by the huge increase of people seeking advice in January," senior partner Vanessa Lloyd Platt said. "The vouchers seem to appeal to an enormously wide spread spectrum of people looking for that 'must-have' gift for Christmas."
